The NASA Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans is a world-class facility and one of the largest production buildings in the world. Michoud manufactures and assembles large scale space structures and systems. Michoud is currently supporting the NASA Space Launch System, which will send the Orion spacecraft on explorations farther into the solar system than ever before.

NASA chose to install the ThorGuard 360 on the facility. The TG360 is a complete lightning warning device that samples the atmosphere over 170,000 times per second - it provides instantaneous distance and direction to lightning strikes in the immediate area.
